Want Italian in Brickell? Here’s a new restaurant

The North Italia restaurant has opened in Mary Brickell Village, promising a commitment to handmade, seasonal cuisine.

The restaurateur behind the eatery is Sam Fox, whose Phoenix-based Fox Restaurant Concepts has 50 restaurants nationwide and 4,000 employees. Fox opened his first restaurant when he was 21 and notably partnered with Dr. Andrew Weil to open True Food Kitchen in 2008.

North Italia Miami is the 16th North Italia in the U.S. . It is the first Sam Fox restaurant in the Miami area. “This city’s energy, sense of community and seasonality, is a perfect match for the experience at North—we are honored to now be a part of it,” Fox said in a press release

The General Manager of the restaurant is Juan Carlos Marchan and the Executive Chef is Ryan Smith.

The nearly 8,600-square-foot restaurant can seat 316 indoors and outdoors and is open for weekend brunch, lunch, dinner, and happy hour. Menu items showcase fresh ingredients, including antipasti, salads, handmade pastas, artisanal pizzas and entrées inspired by the garden, farm and sea, the press release said.

Among the items highlighted in the press release were  prosciutto pizza with mission fig, goat cheese and arugula, and the hazelnut torta and classic gelato desserts. For brunch, guests can snack on Italian meatballs and black Mediterranean mussels while deciding between mouth-watering entrées like the nonna casserole or the short rib hash.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
